"1813. The Swedish army is fighting in the War of the Sixth Coalition. The popular general Von Döbeln is arrested for sending the army against the French in breach of orders by the crown prince. At the court martial he is sentenced to death but is pardoned by the king and sent to prison instead. A group of conspirators are planning to set him free and make him their leader in a coup d'etat."

With Sandels, the moss able of Finnish/Swedish commanders of 1808.

Here is my von Döbeln during 1808, while still a colonel.


I got some affinity to the Pori Regiment as my family from mother's side comes from the region.

The English version neglects to mention that von Döbeln served in French military during 1780's -in 1781 he was USA bound as an officer in De La Marcks regiment but in the last minute they were redirected to India.

Swedish Wikipedia entry is the most extensive one
